Ebony (genus Diospyros) is a dense black wood, most commonly yielded by several species in the genus Diospyros.
This jet-black wand wood had an impressive appearance and reputation, being highly suited to all manner of combative magic and to transfiguration. Ebony was happiest in the hand of those with the courage to be themselves. Frequently non-conformist, highly individual or comfortable with the status of outsider, ebony wand owners had been found both among the ranks of the Order of the Phoenix and among the Death Eaters.
In the experience of Garrick Ollivander, the ebony wand's perfect match was the one who would hold fast to their beliefs, no matter what the external pressure, and would not be swayed lightly from their purpose.
The word "ebony" derives from the Ancient Egyptian "and Midd", via the Ancient Greek by way of Latin and Middle English.
Behind the scenes
The choice of Jacob's sibling's second wand is determined by the player's answer to Ollivander's question about what quality they were drawn to. If they reply individuality and combative magic, Ollivander will give them an Ebony and Dragon Heartstring wand.
